It is amazing how many prominent Republican are speaking out against Trump. No wonder he is now trying to work with Democrats.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/trump-kneel-attack-gives-his-base-reason-stand-n804316

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is getting exactly what he wanted from a racially charged confrontation with professional athletes and sports team owners: A morale boost for his base and a fight with those who see the refusal to stand for the National Anthem as an appropriate form of dissent.

Trump’s fiery declaration on Friday night that National Football League owners should "fire or suspend" players who kneel during the anthem was met Saturday with fierce criticism and on Sunday with mass demonstrations of resistance on the field.

Some players knelt, while others locked arms in solidarity. Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh and Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan were among those who joined players in protests that are now nearly as much about Trump as the original desire, pushed into the spotlight more than a year ago by Colin Kaepernick, to highlight racial injustices in the criminal justice system.

"He wanted a reaction. He got that reaction," former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele told NBC News. "It’s very disappointing — the same level of stuff we get from the president that doesn’t advance a genuine conversation but polarizes people into camps…This is asinine."


But at a time when some of Trump’s staunchest allies are lining up against him in an Alabama Senate GOP runoff on Tuesday, his effort to dismantle Obamacare is hanging by a thread, and the president's been more likely to team up with Democratic leaders than Republicans on legislation, GOP strategists say Trump found an issue that reminds his supporters where he stands on cultural issues

Is this owner a bum too?

Jacksonville Jaguars Shad Khan was conspicuously silent on Saturday following President Donald Trump’s comments about players who choose to kneel during the national anthem. It seemed he was waiting until Sunday to make his loudest statement yet.

Following Trump’s comments in which he claimed players should be fired for kneeling during the national anthem, Khan, who donated $1 million to Trump’s presidential campaign, declined to make a public statement of his own. Instead, he referred to a Jaguars spokesperson:

“Commissioner Goodell’s statement speaks for Mr. Khan and the Jaguars.”

Then, before Jacksonville’s London game on Sunday morning, one where a number of players from both sides chose to kneel, Khan linked arms with two of his players as a show of unity.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart made a not-so-subtle jab at President Trump during a conference call with reporters on Monday.

“Looking at yesterday, everyone should know, including the President, this is what real locker room talk is,” said Lockhart

He should care about ratings. If they get any worse the Republicans in congress will make it so miserable for him he will resign.

Poll: Who’s Backing NFL Protesters? The Answer May Surprise You
Newsweek Emily Ekins,Newsweek 5 hours ago

On Monday we released one question from the forthcoming national Cato 2017 Free Speech and Tolerance Survey of 2,300 Americans conducted by the Cato Institute in collaboration with YouGov.

The national survey finds that a solid majority, 61 percent, of Americans oppose firing NFL (National Football League) players who refuse to stand for the national anthem before football games in order to make a political statement.

These results stand in contrast to President Trump’s remarks over the weekend and his urging NFL teams to fire players who refuse to stand for the anthem.

A little more than a third (38 percent) of Americans align with Trump and support firing these players

Those polls don't mean crap because they don't question the average blue collar worker! Didn't you learn that from the Hilary debacle!

Chuck Rosenberg, acting head of the Drug Enforcement Administration, will resign at the end of the month, multiple media outlets are reporting.

Rosenberg, a holdover from President Barack Obama’s administration, announced his plans on Tuesday, according to an email sent to DEA staff and obtained by The Washington Post and The New York Times. Anonymous law enforcement officials told the Times that Rosenberg had become “convinced that President Trump had little respect for the law.”

Trump Says NFL Ratings Are ‘Way Down’ Due To Protests. But The NFL Says They Are Up.

More people are watching top NFL games than ever watched “The Apprentice.”

By Ryan Grenoble

Not only are ratings for NFL games not “way down” as Trump claimed on Twitter early Tuesday, they’re actually up.

The weekend’s NFL ratings were 3 percent higher overall than for the same weekend last year, a league spokesman told HuffPost Tuesday. And ESPN’s Monday night game was up 63 percent, compared with the Monday game at this time last year.
